Forest View Manor
Forest View Manor began as a ministry vision of Ann Nixon Christie in the early 1980’s. She worked with several agencies developing the first senior citizen councils in the state, and also administrated facilities for other companies. Her experiences led her to enlist the aid of her son, Mark Nixon, to create a new type of assisted care facility with the feel of home. The purpose from the outset was to provide a home and necessary care services to enhance the quality of life for our senior citizens. On October 1, 1988, the doors were opened. Since conception, our home has provided care and support to over 300 families from all parts of the country. This family mission has now carried on to the third generation with Mark’s daughters, Leslie and Kasey Nixon, continuing on through the family business.
Located in rural Edgefield County, the facility benefits daily from the hospitality of the surrounding community. Many area churches from both Edgefield and McCormick and local civic groups, as well as individuals, provide regular services, programs, and entertainment for our residents. Their efforts help to keep our residents ‘plugged in’ and involved in their community. Our residents look forward with great anticipation to having groups come and present music, religious services, or sometimes just come to spend some time with us. We enjoy sharing in the experiences of our community, and we feel very fortunate to be a part of it.
